Do This in Remembrance of Me

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My Body given for you; do this in Remembrance of Me.” (Luke 22:18-20)

What is the real story behind Memorial Day? No, Memorial Day isn’t about a long weekend road trip, backyard barbecue or sales. The real meaning of the national holiday is much more somber. Originally called Decoration Day, Monday’s holiday honors all soldiers who died during service to the nation. 

Memorial Day was declared a national holiday through an act of Congress in 1971, and its roots date back to the Civil War era, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Unlike Veterans Day, Memorial Day honors all military members who have died in while serving in U.S. forces.

FINAL THOUGHTS

While we remember those military members who have died while serving in U.S. forces, let us not forget Jesus’ ultimate death for the remission of our sins. We should always honor Him, and His death paved the way for eternal salvation.

  1. Amen and what a wonderful blessing we have been given through the life and death of Jesus Christ in his goodness, grace and mercy and I am so thankful for the knowledge that I have of him.

    My thoughts and prayers reach out to all of those who have died in the service of their nations to ensure that we have the rights and privileges to live in a free and democratic society.
